That motherboard has 4 SATA 2.0 slots.

Should work well.
You said "hard drive" so I am assuming you do not mean
Solid State drive (SSD)

I am surprised you are using Windows 7 with that MB

SOURCE: Unable to use SATA hard disk with existing IDE Hard disk

Hi abhinav13, please disconnect you're IDE. (do not remove it).
You're board only supports SATA 1.0 which is 1.5BG & not the SATA II at 3.0GB. Knowing that you may need to use the jumper to set the drive to 1.5GB. Once you are sure the drive is set correctly than hook it into the PC. If after disconnecting the IDE & SATA drive is shown in the bios. Set the jumper on you're IDE to function as a slave drive.
Enter the bios again. If you do not find the SATA drive listed than your onboard SATA controller is defective. You can not fix that.
So hate giving out bad news.

Luck!
Mike

SOURCE: pinnacle 14 says "not responding"

I found that Pinnacle usually did the whole "this program is not responding...CRASH" thing when I was trying to do a lot of things all at once very quickly...clicking on this, dragging this over there, adding this effect here...all before i allowed pinnacle to render the things i had it do.
To combat this, everytime I do something new to a clip, I let it render before doing anything else...
it slows me down a LOT, but not more than having to re-open pinnacle over and over did.
